On the 1st June Andrew was at last granted refugee status!
Andrew has been an outspoken advocate for all who are going through the demeaning immigration process. After twice being put through a full interview (in which an agent even sought to discredit his sexuality by going through his mobile phone and suggesting there were ‘a lot’ of female names) the Home Office withheld making any decision on his case for over a year.
They kept his case in excruciating limbo, rather than grant the security of asylum – a security that not only strengthens Andrew to fight against racism and anti-immigrant scapegoating, but is a victory for all the people routing for Andrew to win – the Movement. It proves that if you fight, and you are part of building the movement you can win.
We must now renew our efforts to win asylum for Tacko, Asuman and Proscovia - Please re-share the petition with your friends, get as many signatures as possible.
